UW’s Jeffrey Lockwood featured on WNYC Radiolab
WNYC Radiolab’s latest “short” podcast features University of Wyoming professor Jeffrey Lockwood. “Killer Empathy” (run time 18 minutes 33 seconds) explores the mysterious nature of violence in both the human and animal worlds.
Lockwood, a WyoFile contributor, is a renowned entomologist, author, and is a professor of creative writing and philosophy. He tells the story of how he discovered what he believes is some level of self-awareness among a particularly fierce breed of cricket, which got him to thinking about violent behavior. Then the senseless, violent death of a mentor only made the quest for understanding more difficult.
